Value Capture and Investability:

The KeyStone Compact

A pre-event session with Prof. Peter

Adriaens, University of Michigan-

Ross School of Business walking us

through a case example of a company

evaluation using the Key Stone

Compact, designed to determine

investability and value capturing

potential of a company. Some of

the recent Nordic success stories

like Beneq and Eniram have passed

through this evaluation with bright

colors. A ‘light’ version of the

method will be available on-line for

self-assessment and demonstrated.

China – Nordic Investor Summit

An investor-only session where

Nordic and European investors meet

the leading Chinese financial and

industrial actors interested in cleantech

opportunities in the Nordics

and discuss issues such as direct VC

investments, fund investments and

frameworks for financial cooperation.

This session is organized as a

follow-up to the Nordic Cleantech

Showcases that were held in Shanghai

and Hong Kong earlier this year

and raised a lot of interest.

International Start-up Day

The first day’s programme is devoted entirely to the future: most successful incubators with

cleantech focus from the Nordics and abroad talking about developments on their home markets;

and up-and-coming cleantech start-ups presenting their cases. New financing forms such as

crowd-funding and new VC funds are also a part of this day’s discussion.
